I know Dustin promised that last week would see the end of the 2008 lists, but I like to make a liar out of him. So as many of you know, we ran a series on some of our favorite musical releases of 2008, which was met with joy, rage, revulsion, love, snark, and apathy.

Pretty much what I expected.

Well, now it’s your turn, smartasses. What were YOUR favorite albums of 2008? The rules are simple: Must be a release from 2008. Re-issues aren’t allowed. You don’t have to rank them. List your top five. Here are mine (in no particular order), in case you’re curious:

1) Warship: Supply and Depend

2) Atmosphere: When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold

3) The Gaslight Anthem: The ‘59 Sound

4) Murder By Death: Red of Tooth and Claw

5) Dr. Horribles Sing-Along Blog: Original Soundtrack

Honorable mentions: Ratatat — LP3, Drive-By Truckers — Brighter Than Creation’s Dark, Old Crow Medicine Show — Tennessee Pusher, Thrice — The Alchemy Index Volumes III & IV, Fucked Up — The Chemistry of Common Life.

After a few days, we’ll compile the lists and let you know what the top picks were. Happy listening, jerks.
